Meet the Freekicks Team.  

 

The Freekicks story started in 2012 with Founder Adam Aziz.  Adam had a vision for making the world a better place through the game of soccer, and had the desire to utilize his coaching skills to create a positive impact in deprived communities.  Shortly after, Adam met Justus through a mutual friend.  Justus and Adam had their first “official” meeting at a Tim Horton’s, where Adam shared his plans for the International Program in Uganda. Since Justus is Ugandan-born, their friendship was a natural fit.  Based on Adam’s story and vision, Justus was filled with a burning desire.  He thought to himself: “Here is someone not even from Uganda and is willing to help my country, and I am from Uganda and haven’t done anything”.  That thinking is what propelled Justus to get involved with Freekicks.
